Ultrasound-guided thrombin injection (UGTI) has emerged as the preferred treatment modality for pseudoaneurysms occurring as a result of percutaneous femoral arterial interventions. UGTI is safe and effective, with few complications. Native arterial thrombosis has been rarely reported in the literature following UGTI and has usually been attributed to excessive thrombin injection. We report a case of femoral arteria thrombosis occurring following UGTI of a 4 cm postcatherization pseudoaneurysm with a wide, short neck successfully treated by surgical intervention. The large size of the neck of this pseudoaneurysm likely contributed to the development of this complication.
